Inspired by the experiences from the voyage
In December 2017, Kystpilegrimsleia from Egersund to Trondheim was officially approved as a St. Olav Way and an European Cultural Route. Author and photographer Rune Nylund Larsen was on the opening voyage in 2018.
During the trip he got the idea for the book and a good part of the pictures we find in "Kystpilegrimsleia - Sjøveien til Nidaros" are from the opening voyage. Afterwards, there have been several trips along the pilgrim path, also on land, and the book is full of great pictures and stories from the coastal pilgrimage route and the key places.
"The book about Kystpilegrimsleia is a spectacular and beautiful journey that is accompanied by the great stories of nation building, the introduction of Christianity and the Reformation, but also the recent stories of people who have dug in to settle far out towards the sea".
